SOLUTIONS FOR YOU

Michigan law requires an equitable distribution of property in a divorce proceeding, but it’s rare that the division between spouses will be exactly equal. Courts split all assets according to fairness, which can be extremely complicated in a complex property division divorce case. Interests in a business, retirement benefits, investment accounts, and other possessions are far more challenging than divvying up bank accounts, vehicles, and simple real estate. A spouse can put his or her rights at risk without the advice and counsel of an experienced Clinton Township attorney.

At the law firm of Iafrate & Salassa, P.C., our attorneys have the skills necessary to protect your interests in a complex property division divorce case. Asset distribution under the Michigan statute involves thorough investigation into the holdings of divorcing couples, and application of meticulous valuation formulas. Our lawyers possess the attention to detail and legal knowledge to ensure you get your fair share according to law.

Representing Your Interests in Tough Divorce Cases

Michigan law requires courts to look to a number of factors when making an equitable division of marital assets, such as real estate and personal property. However, there are various legal issues to consider and the decision is largely within the discretion of the judge. With complex property division cases, there are three primary areas where problems arise:

  1. Complicated Property Holdings: It’s not tough to divvy up proceeds from a savings account, but assets that are titled in trusts or other legal structures can be challenging.
  2. Large Scale, High Net Value Assets: The higher the value of real or personal property, the greater the potential for convoluted legal disputes and proceedings.
  3. Potential for Misconduct: With certain types of assets, there’s an increased chance of fraud in executing documents. In other cases, a spouse may be tempted to hide assets or engage in other misconduct to prevent them from being considered in property division or alimony determinations.
